"usa today" is remibdsing us this morning franklin roosevelt was criticized for spending time on his yacht. john adams spent seven months in quincy, massachusetts, on his farm in 1797 and actually accused of abdicating his office and that criticism didn't help his bid for the second term. now, for republicans who are ready to poun

. that was representative martha roby being confronted by a rather energized audience member at a town hal in alabama. it's the kind of anger, vitriol, hatred and at time racism that has confused recent conservative events, and it's gotten so bad that calling obama an american-hating communist despot is hardly the worst of it. take for instance what we saw over the weekend in missouri when a rodeo clown put on an obama mask, prompting the announcers to mock and insult the president. one audience member said it was like something out of a klan rally. chanting obama is 47% negro, chanting bye-bye black sheep. and in orlando earlier this month, the president and first lady were recently greeted with signs that said kenyan go home. renewing calls for impeachment and investigations into the president's birth certificate, two issues that some read as veiled attacks on the president's race. the recent from blake farenthold from texas. >> unfortunately, the horse is already out of the barn on this, on the whole birth certificate issue. the original congress when his eligibility came up and looked into this. i'm
